Challenge - Digital Challenges : Selective Coloring of a b/w photo
by Jen Martakis
posted 12/23/09
Galleries: Scrapbooking

Here's a simple way to add selective coloring to your black & white photos.

1. Open your color photo.

2. Duplicate your photo. (In Photoshop, go to your layers palette, right click on layer and click Duplicate.)

3. Desaturate top layer. (Image > Adjustments > Desaturate)

4. Use your eraser tool to remove the portion of the photo you would like to be in color. (hint - Zoom in to get a good look at the portion of the photo you're working with.)

My selective coloring in this photograph is very subtle but brings your eye to the flower which is an important part of the story I'm sharing.

Selective coloring can be used successfully in much more dramatic ways too. Have fun with this challenge!

Supplies: Jen Martakis WhiteSpace No. 3 and  Grateful Kit. Font - 2peas Journal. Photo by Susannah Waechter.
